HT Imam, co-chairman of Awami League Election Steering Committee, today said tomorrow’s national polls will set an example in the region for its peaceful atmosphere.

At a press briefing at the AL central office in the city, HT Imam also praised the Election Commission saying, "The EC is more capable of organizing a fair, credible, and participatory election."

Imam also termed the prevailing electoral atmosphere peaceful.

"It is the ruling party men who were the victims of attacks by BNP and Jamaat-e-Islami," he added.

Referring to the violence of BNP-Jamaat alliance in 2001, 2008, and 2014, he said the polls-related violence was low this year thanks to the efforts of the law enforcers.

He also dubbed Jatiya Oikyofront's ballot stuffing allegation “a joke”, saying: "The EC is an independent body and only the designated people can check ballot boxes."
